Happy 24th!

Hi David,

Happy 24th Birthday!  Wow – 24.  Amazing.  I hope you are creating a forever memory today at the coast.  Our friendships are the only things of earth that we get to take to Heaven with us.  You have always been a faithful friend to David and for that reason alone I will always adore you.  But also I am so proud, grateful and thankful to see you walking with our Lord Jesus Christ.  I hope I had some small part in that, considering the amount of time you spent at my house.  =)  But even if I didn’t, it brings me joy to see it.   I will continue to watch as God’s plans unfold in your life.  Mr. Lundberg and I claim you as one of ours you know.   Hey, remember when I used to make you finish your milk?  Hope you didn’t hate me too much!  You are always welcome to drop by for a glass of milk any time.  You may have heard that I buy it straight from the cow these days!   You need to try it – good stuff. 

Your sister in Christ, Mrs. Lundberg

Here’s what I know about you: good halo player, particular about the things you own, man with a plan, good worker, and a man who goes after the Lord. All of these things have made you a good guy to get to know. Happy Birthday!

David,

I have lots of memories of you, which are all great, but I am just really thankful overall for all the life we shared over the past couple years in “Canada” (particularly when there was strange/awesome food involved).  I’ve gotten to watch God do many things in your heart, which has been messy at times, but beautiful.  You pursue after the things that God has for you with an amazing passion and eagerness, and with a hope that I find refreshing.  God has definitely used you in my own life to encourage me and love me when I needed it.

Have a happy birthday, and I look forward to our adventures in the fall!

Closet Anyone?…

In Uncategorized on June 25, 2011 by deassisi

I’ll never forget sitting in the closet at IKEA with you and four other people for over an hour. ..that was a huge relief to my feet and mind after walking through that crazy place :).  It ended up prolonging our time there, but hey, how many people get to say, “I spent and hour sitting in the closet at IKEA…”.  Thanks for the fun memories.  You have so much value and I appreciate and treasure the thoughts and wisdom you have shared with me over the years.  Because of your obedience to God, you are twice the man you would have been without him.  God has given you so many amazing gifts!! Keep sharing!!

Happy Birthday Friend!!

There are so many things I want to say here that would probably get a laugh out of David but a lot of other people wouldn’t appreciate reading. :p

David, you put more effort into how you live your life, are more intentional the ways you choose to love others, are more deliberate in seeking out the benefit of other people, and are more willing to pour yourself into finding the service God designed you for, than just about anyone I have ever met.

Also, you show an incredible amount of grace towards people who wrong you.  That is a very rare trait.

Happy birthday, but more than that, I wish and pray for joy for you every day.  May your year be filled with birthdays 🙂

I remember:

To pick just one memory…

Spending Easter a few years ago with your family was so much fun and relaxing.  I think that you are very welcoming and hospitable and I really appreciate that about you and I’m sure many other people do too.  When you talk with people, it sounds like you really care about them, which I think you must.  You desire to share God’s love with everyone!  Anyway, back to the Easter memory.  The egg hunt that we had in the back yard was really funny since we were all in our 20’s but it was really fun to act like kids again!  And afterwards we had a cascarones war, which I had never had before.  I didn’t even know what they were before that time!  But it was a great way to be introduced to that tradition.  Thank you for including me in your family for the day.  Thanks for the memory. 

Happy Birthday, David!

May God bless you abundantly more than you can possibly imagine!
